Not to be rude or anything, I was just curious.
No problem, I have handcontrols, with my left hand I steer and with my right hand I control the gas and brakes. Trying to use the paddle shifters would require me to let go of the gas to up shift, down shift I can do since my left hand is on the steering wheel. I'm looking at installing two toogle switches on the right side of the handcontrol so I can use my index finger to up/down shift. It can be done just have to find the correct size switches. Here's a pic of the controls.
